    Set your COLOURS to an appropriate depth - this can save filesize
    The other options can remain as shown
    Note - Animated GIFs will play in a Googlesite if you store the image on a SHARED GoogleDrive folder, and embed it from there using
    INSERT | DRIVE | IMAGE

    Creating an MOV (bitmap)
    MOV files are IDEAL for sharing through YouTube - although they result in bigger files and limit the resolution, they are more universally compatible with a wider range of viewers.

    MOV is one of the better "video" file formats that Flash can export to. It's compatible with YouTube. Animations will not loop
    An SWF is the HIGHEST quality format output format for your Flash work, and likely uses the SMALLEST filesize. It allows you to publish STILL images, ANIMATIONS and allows INTERACTIVITY (buttons) with the users
